Opportunistic Routing Protocols in Underwater Sensor Networks: Challenges and Future DirectionsSpeaker: Varun G Menon – Kochi, Kerala, India
Topic(s): Networks and Communications
Underwater Sensor Networks have emerged as one of the most popular researched areas in the networking field due to their numerous applications in ocean exploration, underwater surveillance, pollution detection, submarine tracking and disaster prevention. With unique characteristics such as higher delay in transmission, dynamic nodes, limited storage and battery, the most important challenge for researchers is in efficient routing of data packets from the source to the destination nodes. The recently proposed Opportunistic Routing technique has emerged as the most efficient solution to this problem. Opportunistic Routing utilizes the reception of the same broadcasted packet at multiple neighboring nodes in the network and selects one best forwarder node dynamically from the set of multiple receivers based on some unique metric.
This lecture discusses the working and behavior of the latest opportunistic routing protocols proposed for Underwater Sensor Networks and presents the challenges and future research directions.
